Google in the Process of Creating the World’s First Talking Cars!

So what’s the USP of Google’s ‘driverless cars’? Well, the clue's in the name; these cars will be out on the road without a driver in site!

These look like regular cars, sound like regular cars and behave like them too, hence it’s expected that pedestrians will treat them no differently, or be any less cautious when playing ‘chicken’ etc.…

Yelling ‘move out of the way’ at those on foot certainly isn’t feasible without a human driver present to do the yelling, therefore this new breed of car will have to be inventive when it comes to dealing with pedestrians.

A document discovered by Reboot filed the big boys of the web has recently publicised how its autonomous cars might alert passers-by whether or not it’s safe to cross the road when they’re coming. According to the Washington post, methods include using loudspeakers to blast out warning messages if it’s unsafe to cross the road in front of the vehicle.

The patent filed also talks about possible electronic signage on the body of the vehicles, broadcasting their next move in order to warn people of their intentions and avoid accidents.

The race to manufacture and sell the first driverless car is on, as virtually every automaker is attempting to be the first to launch them. Google is currently in the lead; the web giant is already in the process of road testing its driverless cars.

Don’t get too excited, though as it’s said to be several years before you can legally own one – we’ll just have to make do with driving ourselves around, for now...
